Charlie – Capacity up to 9.000 products/hour*

The Charlie folding machine is a compact version of our Hercules folder. The machine is smaller both physically and in terms of capacity but has the added flexibility of being retool-able to new products, within a pre specified size range.

The Charlie folding machine comes as standard with one set of tools. The combi tool will produce the 4 shown products (Two fold, four fold, star & diamond) in the chosen size. Optionally, the machine can be delivered with other types of tools e.g. Pinwheel or Turnover products.

The development of the Charlie is the result of the bakers’ desire to automate the process, of hand folding dough products, increase productivity and overall efficiency, whilst maintaining established quality standards.

The Charlie folding machine is equipped to serve product volumes of 3.000-9.000 products per hour and the flexibility to switch quickly between products, in an industrial environment.

The Charlie unit has two connections for depositors, so that inside filling can be applied before folding and top filling can be applied after folding onto the final product.

FORM & FRYS has the depositing machine, which matches exactly the needs of our Charlie machine.

Our pneumatic piston depositors can be used for both inside filling and top filling.

Technical nozzle features like a shutoff system, wire cutter, moving nozzles etc. are available for the piston filler.
